The city was founded under Roman emperor Caesar Augustus around 14 BC and offers a host of historical sights covering its Roman, Islamic and Christian epochs. Nowadays it’s the fifth city in Spain with about 700.000 inhabitants, a great nightlife and some of the best tapas bars in the world.
Zaragoza is an open door to the future and to progress. A city worth visiting for its wide offer in cultural, religious, sports, gastronomic, business tourism, congresses, conventions and incentives, etc. Not to mention the great variety of tourist services and products that the city offers for any type of visitor.
Zaragoza has a history that can be appreciated in the contrast between its historical corners and its modern architecture. Roman, Mudejar, Renaissance or Baroque art coexist in Zaragoza in buildings such as the Roman Theater, the Aljafería, La Seo or the Basilica del Pilar.
In addition, the city contains the second most important collection of Goya's work in the world, as it was here that the Aragonese painter began his career as a painter. Zaragoza, a city with a vocation for modernity, hosted the 2008 International Exhibition, thanks to which it was able to notably increase its infrastructure for hosting, satisfying the needs of the most demanding visitors. The new airport, the Intermodal station, the renovated banks of the Ebro, the future implementation of the Digital Mile and the Expo 2008 area, among others, are good examples of this.
